There are few people in the world with real class and elegance playing blues at the very best and one of these very few belonging to this category is Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Kenny has kindly accepted to talk to me about his latest project to date, The Rides, recorded together with two legends of the music establishment, Stephen Stills and Barry Goldberg and to talk about his solo career.

The Rides have published their debut album Can't Get Enough at the end of August 2013, and they are looking already at the possibility of recording a second album. Kenny on the other end, as a solo artist is due to release a cover album later this year with a lot of very special guests.

"To catch the live performance, is like lightening in a bottle ... " ~John Waite.

I don't know how to catch lightening in a bottle, but I am sure going to try. I had the honor of interviewing John Waite for our website and have been thinking about his comments ever since.

John Waite. Yes, THE John Waite. The John Waite who started off his non-stop career as the lead of The Babys singing, "Every Time I Think Of You." A song that has been in our heads and hearts since it hit the top 20 in 1979. Even the backup singers are famous from this song, as readers on our website went toe to toe on liner note researches to figure out who they are. The fame of The Babys brought John into a different format, as he took a mid-section of the 80's and in walked, "Bad English."

Waite has great memories of these bands, and could have rode out his career on the hits, but went solo, only to record more great songs that spoke to the public. "Missing You" was not only a smash hit, but has been covered by Tina Turner, Alison Krauss and even current indie artists on tour, like New Orleans blues singer, Olga Munding. Waite appreciates the attention that other artists and fans bring to his music. However, there is something more that this talented man has yet to do, before the timeless rocker decides his career is complete.
